1 - There seems to be a surge of new sellers recently and a few are getting banned after 3 posts etc. Why cant there be a goal like 300 posts or 7 buyer feedback before someone may list for themselves? Jus a small thought.


I'd rather they were banned after 3 posts than 300 posts in one of the word games that would mean them being brought to the top of the forum even more than they are now.

Why would someone have to buy 7 items, if they were a scammer surely they'd just scam a buy rather than a sale?

2 - Often ive seen threads closed because they havent been expired which is fair play its the rules but sometimes people list after like 3 weeks of inactivity on another thread thats selling the same, couldnt we have a like cooling off period thing where if theres not a post in it for like 2 whole weeks they can relist and ask for the dead one to be locked/expired?


Why not just get them to follow the current rules that they were prompted to read before they listed?

Having a minimum post count has been discussed before and its still not really a solution. Members would (as Saint mentioned) just post drivel in the chat chreads then sell items.

HUKD have tried to get round some of the problems by instigating the feedback system but even thats not perfect. All you have to do is sell 10 low value items get the +ve feedback and then scam people with some high value items......

You can never remove all the risk all you can do is reduce it by following the guidelines in the FS/FT forum.
